"Michael Hendricks talks about Prolog - a powerful, modern(?), general purpose language. Michael presents how they used genetic algorithms to evolve Prolog programs based on historic data from peer to peer lending markets. The resulting Prolog program outperforms 98% of similar investors."

Genetic programming - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"In artificial intelligence, genetic programming (GP) is an evolutionary algorithm-based methodology inspired by biological evolution to find computer programs that perform a user-defined task. Essentially GP is a set of instructions and a fitness function to measure how well a computer has performed a task. It is a specialization ofgenetic algorithms (GA) where each individual is a computer program. It is a machine learning technique used to optimize a population of computer programs according to a fitness landscape determined by a program's ability to perform a given computational task."
